Lenovo is no stranger to the tablet market, and we’re no stranger to covering 2-in-1 slates. Lenovo has introduced a new one for Windows fans with the Lenovo MIIX 310, and it’s set to debut with a very nice price tag when summer rolls around.
There was a time when hybrid tablets were exotic beasts that carried huge price tags. That isn’t the case anymore as component prices have dropped, and we’ve seen plenty of 2-in-1’s roll out of the Far East from manufacturers big and small. The Lenovo MIIX 310 will soon join their ranks, but and it offers up several features to make it a contender if you are in the market for a Windows-based slate.
The Lenovo MIIX 310 allows you to use it as a tablet or as a laptop, but regardless of its position, it will have a 10.1-inch panel of glass although there will be two resolutions as can “opt” for a FHD display. An Intel Atom X5 8300 will power the slate, but you’ll have to make a choice on storage with up to 64GB of eMMC and RAM up to 4GB of DDR3L. The battery size wasn’t listed, but it’s said to provide around 10 hours of power with the FHD display. You’ll get full Windows 10 out of the box with Cortana, and while Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be standard, there will be an 4G LTE model in the future as well. All versions will come with a detachable magnetic keyboard.
We’re not exactly sure what you’ll get with the base model of the Lenovo MIIX 310, but at only €269 it still an attractive option. The higher spec’d editions will no doubt set you back a pretty penny, and we expect to hear more about those prices as we get closer to the tablet’s release in June.
